I have connected my DVD player the TV exactly as described in the instruction manual but no matter what, I get all these green lines and scattered green bits all over the screen. The only thing I have been able to watch is either my Direct TV receiver or HD cable box that are plugged into the AV4 jacks. Anything else, VCR, DVD player, plugged into AV1, AV2, AV3 gives me those green lines and dots. Being an HDTV monitor, I'm sure that has something to do with it but what can I do?
Your DVD player may be set up to put out a different mode. Are you using the component cables or s-video? If it's the component cables, make sure you're player is putting out 480p. Also, try it with another set to see of you can localize the problem.

Firstly, please make sure you have connected the SCART cable correctly. This should be connected to a SCART OUT socket on the DVD player to one of the SCART IN or EXT sockets on the rear of the TV.
If you have correctly connected the SCART cable the TV should automatically switch to the AV channel when you switch the DVD player power on or insert a disc.
Switch your TV on, then switch the DVD player off and then on again. If the TV does not change to the AV channel you may have the SCART cable connected incorrectly.
Not all TVs automatically switch to the AV channel when the AV device is switched on. On some TVs the AV input is on channel 0 or 99. On other TVs the AV input is not assigned to a specific channel. On these TVs you need to look for a button marked "AV", "INPUT" or "SOURCE" - either on the TV remote or on the buttons on the front of the TV. The easiest way to do this is to insert a disk into the DVD player and start it playing. Then press the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" button (whichever one you have) repeatedly until you find the signal from the DVD player.
Please check your connections and try using the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" buttons. If you are still unable to watch your DVD player, please post back with the following information:
1. Model number of the Bush TV 2. Brand and model number of the DVD player 3. If you are using any remote other than the ones supplied with the TV or DVD player, the brand and model number of the remote.
I will then be able to tell you exactly how it should be connected and which buttons (if any) you need to press to access the AV channel.

The lens cleaner is a CD "Audio" disc that has some imbedded brushes on one of the audio tracks.
Read the instructions carefully (no harm if it's not done right). Turn ON your speakers or listen to the CD/Cleaner through your headphones. There are no chemicals involved, and can be used several times.
The problem (darkness) may not go away.
It seems more like the voltage level on the DVD output or the TV input is too low.
If you have several things connected to the DVD, disconnect them, except the TV.
If you have other devices turned on that are connected to the TV, turn them OFF (like a VCR or another DVD player, etc).
Hook up the cable wire that comes directly from the wall to the dvd recorder's in connection, then get a 3 ft cable cord and connect from the out of the dvd recorder to the in on the tv. You should be able to set the dvd recorder channel and timer and leave it off. you then should be able to have your tv on and watch any station but to watch the tv with dvd recorder on, your tv should be set to either channel 3 or 4 depending on the switch on back of dvd recorder. I hope this solves your problem. Foxpaw13
it really doesnt matter what color the cables are as long as the one from video out on the dvd player is going to video in on the tv then the same for the sound.yellow is generally video and red would be your sound
You will have to connect your DVD player to the plasma TV, not the cable box. The cable box (or most cable boxes) have video outputs only. The same is true for the DVD player: it outputs the video to the tv.
Look in your DVD manual for scenarios for connecting your player to the tv.
